I would like to personally invite you to stop by and see the center. We can talk about what activities and events interest you. We can also talk about adding events or activities that would encourage you to come back. We are open from 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Checkout our website for new activities pictures. You might be surprised who all you will see having fun with us. www.finneycountyseniorcenter.org

I am happy to announce that our very popular Foot Clinic is coming back in July. We are working with Brandi, Barbara and Misty at Caregivers Home Health to bring this activity back to the center. Our July/August Newsletter will have more information.

The Bridal Dress Show schedule for Friday, June 28 has been cancelled. We did not have sufficient interest to proceed.
